Just an FYI, if you haven't seen the new Liquid Ego's that just came out. They are pretty cool. A definit rival to the GoPro. Now don't get me wrong I love my GoPro and all its mounts and durability of the cases. But the EGO comes out of the box with some cool accessories built in. Wifi capable out of the box, water resistant stand alone, 1080p 30fps, 720p60fps, 12mp camera, takes a micro sd card and the list goes on and on. Control it with your smart phone. android and Iphone capable out of the box. And new firmware has been announced for a lot of upgrades etc. I included some new photos and a link to their website.

$179.99 at most places.

Figured you might want to see the mount it comes with. Looks like the GoPro but does not fit GoPro mounts. The mount actually screws into the bottom of the camera

Looks good. I wonder if it will be as durable.

One question, do you like your humanoid surf board? I was thinking of picking one up but can't find a review anywhere.

You can buy a waterproof case for diving and whatnot. So that doubles as the durable case for action sports.

I love the Humanoid surfboard. Everyone gets up first try. Great surf board for everyone on the boat. No matter the size.

Thats exactly what I was thinking ;)

I made a small video with it. I only brought one mount and I put it on a spot that vibrates way too much. So I turned around before I went any further. I don't want to lose my new toy right away.. But you can see it does very well with a propeller and bad with high vibration

Traxx, you say water resistant but I dont see that on the web site.... Do you know Resistant to splash or can it be submerged? Thanks for the assist!

The Ego will have a water proof case by Labor day, per manufacture, they say its good beyond 150'
wonder what the wifi signal is that deep?

Resistant to 15 meters deep for 30 min I believe is what I read. So basically splash resistant is what I got from it if thats not exact.

Thanks! Does that plastic cover come with it or was that an accessory?

It comes in the box with it. Same with 2 3m stick pads and one swivle mount that you see there. The cover you see only covers half of it. Stays on during flight though ;)

Does great with propeller distortion. This was taken via wifi HTC One S from the cockpit on 12mp setting. Although you do see the other 2 GoPro's right?

If you are looking for economy budget the ego is the best by far for your buck. If you need professional then the GoPro Hero 3 is the newest and best out there. I own them both and still use them both equally. So I'd say worth it if you're trying to save a few $$

Ok traxx, last question for now. I was just about ready to pull the trigger on a Hero3 white when i realized the white package is half the MP picture and less video capability than a silver and black. What Hero do you own and what would you recommend? It's a $100 difference.....

Thanks!

Go big or go home... But seriously, how good of quality do you want? If you want the latest and greatest, go with the black gopro3. Otherwise you might as well get the cheaper gopro hd 1 or 2 for $150. I have the first hd hero and it's still good quality.

Don't need the greatest but also like the built in wireless, and the higher graphics since I will use this for business as well. I know where I am leaning but my comparison is my iPhone 4 which has a 5 MP camera and trying to determine if that is enough since I use that to take pictures now...

BUMP

Ok good reason for it too. The action camera you see in the original post was given by me to my brother before he deployed. So that he would have a small durable camera that he could capture some pretty decent photos with.

THEN: all the humidity and heat from the Indian Ocean and from traveling all around the Persian Gulf has rendered the camera broken. Not sure why but it isn't working anymore.

So I emailed Liquid Image, they make this camera and other camera related products, and told them how I had given this to him so he would have something nice to get photos with and now its broken, And they said no problem; give us his address, which of course is a military address to a ship that is publicly known to be off the coast of Syria right now, and we will ship him a new one.

WOW! amazing service. If you don't know about Liquid Ego they are the best bang for your buck compared to a Go Pro. They also have built in Wifi that goes to your phone like the hero 3. Except its under $200 :D:D

The photo below was posted by my brother and taken with the Liquid Ego. From a Super Stallion onlooking the USS San Antonio LPD17 in the distance.
